Love walking this neighborhood

Quieter than the other side of the canal - great for walking the maze of streets. Great way to spend an afternoon.

Great area to walk around in and get lost, much less crowded than the main parts of Venice. Be sure to visit the Jewish Ghetto

If you want to eat and drink with locals and be able to enjoy the beauty of Venice without being pushed around by hordes of tourists this is the area for you. Full of local cafes, restaurants and shops it is a great neighbourhood to stay and get a feel for the real Venice.

Like most good places in Italy we discovered this peaceful part of Venice quite by accident. We wanted to visit "Cases di Tintoretto"(hopefully you can read about it in another review)from the Rialto side and was rewarded with experiencing Cannaregio( we used the Google map).You will not believe that you are in Venice ,so quiet this place with hardly a...

The area is nice to walk around and view. It is rather expensive and wasn't the cleanest but it was nice to visit all the shops.

I stayed in the Cannaregio region of Venice which is very central to the train station, Rialto bridge and St Marks square. Cannaregio is an old part of Venice which is very safe and has good, not expensive restaurants.

We walked over to Cannaregio from San Marco one afternoon & we were glad we did. A lovely area of Venezia - local markets, great choices in food, bustling lively feel. A must visit area of the main island!

Lots of lovely quiet streets when you want them and yet close to hustle and bustle if you want it too. Some great neighbourhood places to eat and drink.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
